Van Eyck Academie

Van Eyck Academie


The Jan van Eyck Academie is a multidisciplinary post-academic institute for fine art, design and reflection, located in Maastricht, the Netherlands. They offer places to 35-40 participants on an annual basis to further encourage experiment, research, production, collaboration and exchange within their practice. Artists, designers, curators, (landscape) architects, and writers come from all over the world to work on their own projects during a residency of 11 months.

The Van Eyck provides each resident with a studio, various labs - Wood and Metal, Printing and Publishing, Photography and New Media, a library, Lab for Nature Research, and Food Lab. Additionally, the Van Eyck participants can take part in organising the academy’s programme in terms of lectures, readings, presentations, exhibitions, etc - , and studio visits by internal as well as external experts and advisers.

The multiform character of the Van Eyck appeals to the artistic and intellectual versatility of the participants and enables them to deepen and ramify their talents and skills in the short and long run. The work of the participants is the effect and the result of various intertwined processes. It especially testifies to an art practice that is investigative and committed.

Accommodation Information

The Van Eyck can help you find accommodation in Maastricht. It is compulsory to live in or near Maastricht during your stay at the Van Eyck.


The Van Eyck institute is situated in the historical city centre of Maastricht, the Netherlands, at the heart of the Euregion and occupies a monumental modernist building designed by architect Peutz. The renovation works that were concluded in early 2013 have made the special qualities of the building even more prominent; the building feels more spacious, lighter and more open than ever. Simultaneous with the renovation three gardens were laid out, one of which is a vegetable garden. They reinforce the urban-cum-Arcadian feel of the Van Eyck.
